Coming up today... Author and environmental activist Derrick Jensen joins us to discuss his thoughts on the urgent need to dismantle industrialised society. Guy McPherson Professor emeritus at The University of Arizona says it's all too late anyway and that imminent extinction is assured for humans, perhaps as soon as 2030. John Stewart who was ranked as the UK's #1 environmental activist in the Independent newspaper is back on the show. Last time he discussed the aviation industry, this time it is rapidly sprawling road networks.
Also NASA suggest industrial-civilisation may only have a few decades left, US scientists intervene on the urgent need to tackle human caused climate change, as the south-east braces itself for the construction of two new cities Jonathan Porrit warns that environmental groups have a problem with population, and as environmentalist Al Gore confirms he plans to eat "vegan" for life, meat and dairy are suggested to be as dangerous for human health as cigarettes. Fact of the day investigates how much soya is actually grown for human consumption.
Welcome To The Species Barrier... where two vegan, environmentalists
question how we interact with the planet and the other animals who call
it home. Prepare to have your preconceptions challenged and explore that
barrier in place which separates the human animal from other species.
